This painting depicts a very relevant topic to the Consumed Series. “Shopping” is one of the many consumer activities our world partakes in. I have juxtaposed objects as flat shapes against the figures; objects that have zero value other than for vanity. This work hints at over consumption habits with trash off to the side and marketing slogans on windows. The intension is to highlight neither a positive or negative view but a realistic view on consumption.

Getting to Know Dustin

You might call Dustin Joyce an iconoclast. His project, The Consumed Series, is a playfully satirical depiction of the current American lifestyle. More inquiry than proclamation, Dustin enhances and dramatizes our mass culture, making it appear as another advertising image. His paintings are neither inherently positive nor negative, instead, he intends to present an exaggerated view of our American culture. Dustin strives to design work that is both beautiful and offensive.
